Bethany is an energetic instructional designer who previously worked for a company that helped many small private institutions to launch their online programs. She has worked with traditional institution's baccalaureate and master's degree programs, as well as with several career colleges. She worked closely with both administrators and faculty developing courses for hybrid or 100% online, helping to implement content, to troubleshoot and maintain the LMS, facilitate related technology training, conduct course quality reviews, and she has also redesigned several existing 'orphan' courses. Bethany is a passionate advocate of learner-centric design, as she also has prior experience working directly with both on-ground and online students in recruiting and retention.
